About the City
Vancouver is consistently voted as one of the world’s “Most Liveable Cities”, but those local to Vancouver prefer the term “Most Alive.” Vancouver is intertwined with nature. From the snow-capped mountains to the urban rainforest and sparkling Paciﬁc Ocean that reﬂects the city skyline.
Vancouver is one of the most accessible cities in the world, built around a downtown core where a collaborative network of hotels and exceptional facilities are all just steps away. Though public transit and car shares are easily available, the friendly neighbourhoods and wide-open green spaces are easily walkable, step out from one of 13,000 hotel rooms to live like a local. Vancouver’s award-winning, Double LEED Platinum-Certiﬁed Convention Centre is an epicentre for inspiration, with views that inspire fresh thought and open minds. 466,500 square feet of thoughtfully designed space overlooking Burrard Inlet and Stanley Park – a 1,000-acre natural oasis in the city – offers a perspective that’s helped organizations tackle some of the world’s biggest challenges.
As the host city of the 2010 Winter Olympics, the annual TED Conference and PCMA’s Convening Leaders, Vancouver is used to hosting events that continue to inspire attendees long after they’ve ﬁnished.
